The clothes I make are usually unstructured, make it up as I go along, skirts, dresses and pants.
But this is something else entirely. This is a reversible/lined winter jacket. This is something I would admire in a shop and not even contemplate trying to work out how it was made, to copy it.
The Uptown Girl by Make it Perfect pattern is fantastic! I followed it down to the pressing open of the seams and clipping of the curved seam allowances and it worked.
I made Miss Pepper a size three which is a bit big for her at the moment but will last longer.
I also used iron on interfacing that I had left over from my hat making mania last year that was probably a bit stiff for this project but I have a feeling a machine wash will soften it.
The big girls have put in an order each which is always a good indication of how successful a project is, so it looks like I'll be scaling the pattern up to fit sizes six and nine.
Oh yeah and I still have to find a big button and sew a button hole to replace the safety pin for the closure and then crochet a trim for the plain side.
I hope you have a fantastic, sunshiney weekend. XX
